No. Sit back and let the phone charge for about 30 minutes. Afterwards, power OFF the device, wait about 10 seconds and then continue doing what you were doing prior to the battery being drained.

If however, you were trying to reset and restore your device, you can connect it to iTunes after the 30 minutes of charging and then fire up the iTunes app. Once it is detected, select the restore option. I doubt your device is corrupted and you should be good to go.
